4.0 out of 5 stars Almost perfect, 30 Dec. 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Logitech Squeezebox Boom (Electronics)
I've been looking at getting something like this for months now, and finally took the plunge and bought one. For the most part it's great, but it does have a few little niggles.

Firstly the network connectivity is quite hit-and-miss. It flatly refused to connect to a Netgear DG834G v5 regardless of settings - I even turned off wireless security completely and still it refused to connect. Luckily I had a DG834GT on hand which worked perfectly. Entering WPA2 security keys by twiddling a knob character by character is desperately painful but at least it only has to be done the once.

The styling isn't particularly creative. Personally I'm not that bothered, for me it's about the music rather than the appearance of the player. It's small, it's a simple design, and the sound is good in terms of volume and quality. It's not going to shake the house if you want to organise a big party but for most domestic listening it's more than loud enough.

Sometimes it seems very slow to respond to the remote controller. I'm assuming the battery is still good given it's only a few days since activating it. That's something you can get used to.

So with those provisos aside, the positives of this device are huge. The sound quality is good, I can stream my entire CD collection over my wireless network, and by setting up playlists (which I can do from both the player and via Windoze Media Player) it means I can play the tracks I like without having to skip them or shuffle CDs every so often. A single playlist can provide background music for an entire evening, quickly and easily.

So although I can't fairly give it a 5-star review it's certainly good enough that I'm considering buying another one, and hence it gets a hearty 4 stars, with emphasis towards 5 rather than 3.
